Friday Finals: back into stockpiling!

Fresh off of the $25 Weekly Challenge, I’m glad to be back into the stockpiling stage of shopping because I scored some seriously great stockpile stuff this week!

First, I went to Kroger to get the $1.25 Wisk detergents and free eggs from a home-mailer coupon that was about to expire! I also got a snack for my husband and some frozen pizzas for lunches since we’ve been spending a lot of time at the hospital this week (don’t ask!):

Before coupons/sales = $41.45
Total after = $16.75 or 60% savings

Then, Bi-Lo to get free tea, free hot fudge and hot caramel, cheap paper towels and cheap yogurt and deli meat:

Total before coupons/sales = $38.63
Total after = $7.95 or 80% savings

Then Publix for $.15 Splenda, $.30 snacks, free scissors, almost free cereal, and super-cheap everything else!!!

Before coupons/sales/rebate = $123.68
Total after = $7.11 or 94% savings

And back to Publix because I left some coupons at home to get more stock-up stuff!

Did you know that Publix welcomes special orders if you want a lot of any one item?!

Total before coupons/sales/rebate = $77.29
Total after = $24.71 or 68% savings

Which brings my totals for the week to the following:

TOTAL WEEKLY BEFORE COUPONS/SALES/REBATES = $281.05
TOTAL AFTER = $56.52 or 80% savings!

This week was a little odd again (isn’t every week?) with a ton of cereal, chocolate syrup, snacks, and frozen pizzas, but I also got Splenda, bananas, laundry detergent, paper towels, lunch meat, yogurt, coffee, tea, and cleaner. And we have been eating a lot of zucchini from our garden and cucumbers from a friend’s garden! Also, it’s been a stressful week, so I’ve been needing a lot of my therapy (ie, couponing!) to destress. Couponing really is a way that I release stress, because I really enjoy doing it! It’s fun for me and it’s something that I feel I’m pretty good at!
